This is a single cask of Old Pulteney spirit, bottled by Old Pulteney for KLWines in California. A rare expression, given that it is bottled at cask strength, which is uncommon for Old Pulteney. This is cask #231.
Sweet buttery caramel. Honey, pepper, lemon poppyseed. Butterscotch, salted caramel. Yum.
Medium mouthfeel, honey, toffee, some heat. Ash, ethanol, pepper, light oak.
Medium in length, but a bit hot. Honey, toffee, brine, oak, light ash and some cracked pepper.
I like this but it's a bit hot, and fairly one dimensional. The nose was amazing, but unfortunately the palate and finish couldn't keep up.
